5 years, 60% did not cooperate; therefore, half of the tympanograms did not show any curve. Furthermore, type B curves were often false-positive. Therefore, the sensitivity of tympanometry was 71% and its specificity only 38% with myringotomy as a reference. On the contrary, among cooperative children, a type B curve showed sensitivity of 79% and specificity of 93%. In another survey among infants less than 1 year of age, tympanometry was successful in 94% of cases (Palmu et al, 1999). The sensitivity of a B curve in the detection of MEE was 82% and its specificity was 98% at nonacute visits when compared with myringotomy and/or pneumatic otoscopy.

GR = tympanometric width; MEE = middle ear effusion; TPP = tympanometric peak pressure; YA = static admittance. 12 / Advanced Therapy of Otitis Media (Palmu et al, 2001). The probability of MEE increased with decreasing static admittance and tympanometric peak pressure. However, interestingly, in the few cases of a type C curve connected to MEE, the bacterial culture mainly remained negative, and MEE was serous and of small volume and thus did not significantly affect hearing (Koivunen et al, 1997; Koivunen et al, 2000; Palmu et al, 2001).
